BRINJAL GRAVY RECIPE
    This brinjal gravy recipe i got from a very good friend of mine which they used to call as “Kathrikkai Puli illa Kuzhambhu”, which means Brinjal gravy without tamarind. For a person like me who hates to extract tamarind juice, this type of gravies are really most welcome. So i asked her the recipe and it sounded very simple and tried the next week and it turned out so well and i enjoyed with hot rice along with Green peas curry.

In this recipe the brinjals are cooked in the water which is used to rinse the rice. After a quick wash of uncooked rice take out the second water which is used to wash the rice, which we normally discard.

WATER FROM WASHED RICE 2 CUPS
OIL 1 TSP
SHALLOTS 4
CORIANDER SEEDS 1 TBLSP
CHANNA DAL 1 TBLSP
RED CHILLY 3-4
COCONUT(GRATED) 4 TBLSP
SALT TO TASTE
TURMERIC POWDER A PINCH

A lovely deep gravy without the use of tamarind. And the use of washed rice water is a unique ingredient.

Wash water from rice is being used in some Chettinad recipes like "mandi" .Perhaps the residual starch from the water adds some consistency to the gravy if there is any left with the hand pounded rice.We do not find any such residual starch with the macine polished "ponni "or "sona masuri" rice.Would like to know what other special attributes are imparted to the gravy with the addition of residual wash water

I use normal red chili only. You can reduce it to 1 or 2.
